I ask this because my main emulator for NES roms is not compatible with LUA scripts
So... Why not use another NES emulator?

ROM Hacking Discussion / Re: Porting a Gameboy game to NES

Assuming the 1997 date on DKC is accurate, that would be 3 years before the GBC version was released.
Just to be clear, the graphics look a lot more like they were made from the old 4-color graphics of Donkey Kong Land rather than anything as advanced as the GBC version of DKC.  But then, Donkey Kong Land didn't have anything like the battle against Very Gnawty, so maybe they made everything from the SNES sprites after all.

If it were easy to port GameBoy or GameBoy Color games to the NES, don't you think that loads of people would have already done this over the last two decades?
The thing is, there are a bunch of HK originals that look like they were practically ported from the Game Boy or Game Boy Color to the NES; what comes to mind are the Hummer Team Donkey Kong Country (which surely uses at least some assets from Donkey Kong Land) and the Resident Evil game (that seems derived from Resident Evil Gaiden).  (I asked the same question myself once, but no one replied.)

How strange, they still don't have a price listed.  (Or would that require them to accept preorders?)

I actually did stumble upon another site with pre-patched roms you can download or even play online, but they don't have nearly as much variety and quality as this site does. I won't repeat the site name but There is at least one site that I confirmed working thats already doing this.
So don't know how they got past the legal stuff (for now at least) But I prefer the patches here.
In all likelihood they didn't "get past the legal stuff" and are operating in flagrant violation of the law.  It probably won't get them in any trouble, but not everyone wants to take that risk.

Besides, the big problem with pre-patched ROMs is that there's no easy way to remove the patch and apply a different patch, or even a newer, improved version of an existing patch.

I got an error saying it couldn't connect to the .DLLRegister
Didn't you read the part about starting the Command Prompt as an Administrator?

so I place it in system32
I don't know why you would do that if you are running the 64-bit verison of Windows.

I moved it back in to SysWOW64, put in the command again, and got the same problem as I did with the "System32" method.
So you did the same thing twice and a different thing happened?

I don't really know what will happen if you leave it there, aside from it taking up space.  But since it wasn't there before, I would be surprised if removing it caused any problems, especially if you didn't run regsvr32 yet.

Also, of the disassemblers are for SMB1, apparently.
Oh, right.  (Also, these are disassemblies, not disassemblers.  Disassemblers are used to disassemble and produce a disassembly.)

If you can find one for SMB3 please tell me
The first Google hit for <super mario bros 3 disassembly> is http://www.sonicepoch.com/sm3mix/disassembly.html .  (See http://www.sonicepoch.com/sm3mix/ for the download link.)

unless I overlooked and the disassembler also works with SMB3.
Anything can be disassembled; it's just that the result is difficult to work with unless someone goes through the entire thing very, very slowly and annotates the code.

I've also located System32, and dropped Comdlg.ocx in there, but I can't seem to access the Command Prompt(I use Windows 8.).
I hope you took note that you shouldn't be using the System32 folder if you are running the 64-bit version of Windows 8.  If you're not sure if you're using the 64-bit version, I suggest you take fifteen seconds to do a Google search and find out.

SMB3 Text Editor is too stubborn to load, and I'm not going through risky .dll junk again. I already have a .dll fixer software that's engraved on my PC because of trying to those kinds of issues.
I agree there is no shortage of dodgy sites proferring quick and easy solutions to DLL problems, but it is entirely possible to do these things safely, as I explained in your other thread.  Certainly, trying to hammer out these things from scratch or to find someone else to hammer it out from scratch is probably many times more difficult.

Yes, thank you; that was appalling.  I didn't even realize it was just a graphics hack.

There's lots of cheap stuff available from HX dealers like DX.com.  Of course, you get what you pay for.

Before I got my Clip+, I had a little AAA-powered Nextar unit that suited me fine.  Arranging the playlist required a small freeware program to directly manipulate entries in the FAT.

I tried a nifty little RCA unit once that was pretty cool in that it didn't require a USB cable and basically functioned as a USB stick with a screen on the side.  I think I returned that because the microphone function wasn't working.

He hasn't quit. He was showing current/new work on Twitch a few weeks ago.
Abuh?  I'd pretty much given up on this ever seeing the light of day.

It does?  I was not aware of that.

Still, I figure they could put some sort of pre-authorized debt on one's credit card when you buy a 3DS and say you're going to trade it in, and then remove the pre-authorization when you bring in the one you want to trade in before a certain number of days.  Yes, that would require a credit card, but it's still better than disallowing it entirely.

But then, I've never worked in retail and there could well be some perfectly logical reason (perhaps relating to legality) why that isn't feasible.

RE-EDIT: I tried to open SMBar in Compatibility Mode(using ALL of the Operating Systems), and now I need to download COMDLG32.OCX. I think a download is mandatory, or else I'm screwed, since this program refuses to work. Do you know any safe places to download .dll and .ocx files?
This particular dependency is a common problem in old Visual Basic programs.  Presumably it works the same way in Windows 8 as it does in Windows 7:
http://devonenote.com/2010/02/register-comdlg32-ocx-on-x64-win7/

You may also end up needing comctl32.ocx.  You can get that from http://support.microsoft.com/kb/896559 ; you will need to register it the same way.

How bizarre!  I would sooner blame Gamestop for being backwards and unfriendly than call out Nintendo.

Does Gamestop not let you do a system transfer when you trade in a 3DS?  There's money to be made.

I guess that's possible, but considering that prices on the secondary market seem to be kind of lousy, and considering how much it costs to purchase individual games, it just strikes me as unlikely.

With the 3DS I can do a system transfer, but I need both DS' for that to work. Which means I can't sell my current, soon-to-be obsolete 3DS without losing everything I bought online. Sure, I can transfer it, assuming I keep this 3DS, but I can't recoup some of my spent money until after the transfer.
...So, it's a big deal that you can't sell your old system before you buy a new one?  No, I do not see this as being a great concern to anyone.

If you're suggesting you would be able to sell your current 3DS on the secondhand market for a substantially greater sum at the moment than you will when the new model comes out, that also seems unlikely.  The new 3DS will be available at the price of the current 3DS.

The other side are apologists which seem more interested in justifying the move than actually explaining how it isn't a bad move.
We are not privy to the internal workings of Nintendo, ergo, how should we be able to explain their reasoning?  To assume malice or ignorance seems like an unreasonable leap.
